Hey Fern, I have that type of hitch on a small trailer that I use to haul stuff around the place, everything else is a 1 7/8's ball hitch, including the sawmill. It is a little bit of a hassle changing from the ball to the pin, but, my Polaris hitch has two holes in it, and I am going to try using the second hole for the pin hitch trailer while leaving the ball on, and see if it works.
I personally prefer the pin hitches, but I do occasionally take stuff down the road, and the ball hitch seems like a better way to go when doing that.My buddy towed the log arch out here, about ten miles from his hous, and doesn't recommend towing it on the road. The sawmill has to be road worthy, and it is the biggest thing I tow, about 24' and 1200 lbs. I do move it around my place with the Polaris, but not up any big hills...:).
I also just thought that it might not be a bad idea to change the splitter and arch to a pin hitch, use the primay towing hole for that on the Polaris, and use the ball hitch in the secondary hole, as I don't move the sawmill as much as I use the other toys. Thanks for your input.
